Why is my boiler leaking?

Signs Your Boiler Needs To Be Repaired


Overland Park HeatingEvery boiler needs to be serviced on a consistent basis. If your boiling unit is not cleaned regularly and professionally maintained, it will not run efficiently. Boiling units break down completely when property owners fail to consult an HVAC company for servicing. Dish washing, showering, laundry and other essential tasks are dependent on the quality of water running through the home. The state of the boiler determines whether water runs smoothly, evenly, too hot, to cold or in a balanced flow. Here are some signs to look out for that indicate your boiler needs to be repaired.

Leaking is the primary sign that your boiler needs repairing. Leaks indicate that there has been overheating or extreme water temperatures for a period of time. Ignoring leaks near the boiler leads to higher utility costs and uneven water distribution. Odd sounds are another sign that your boiling unit needs to be repaired. Strange sounds mean that there are iron deposits or sludge accumulating in your boiling unit. These things need to be removed. If your water runs too hot or too cold, your boiling unit needs professional attention. Black soot on the boiler is another sign that it needs to be repaired. Ignoring black soot can lead to problems like thermal tacking or heat loss.

Strange odors are another sign that your boiling unit is failing. Gas leaks often give off a noticeable smell that needs attention immediately. Neglecting this sign can result in a health hazard to people. Also, sediment build-up is a sure indicator that the boiler needs servicing. Rusting is an indicator that corrosion is happening around the flue vent connector. This problem needs attention too or else moisture would not be vented properly. All of these signs are warning signs that you need to contact a professional service to repair your boiling unit to prevent further malfunctioning and damage.

Servicing your boiler and having it cleaned on a timely schedule will prevent your bills from skyrocketing. You will be able to keep your unit longer and won’t have to worry about any permanent damage. Regular maintenance is a good investment.
